Week 2: Our Hockey Room Game Plan

$100 Room Challenge - Week 2: The Game Plan

We're onto week 2 of our $100 room challenge and I gotta say, I'm already behind schedule. Oops! Here's what we did in Week 1. This week we have gotten as far as peeling the decals off the wall and mudding the 1,762,931 holes, knicks & peeled paint that was left behind. Seriously, if Mike Holmes had seen the walls he woulda been all "The right thing to do...is replace all the gyproc". Who's got the patience for that though? Not this girl. Thankfully we keep a pail of mud on hand because, well, kids. More specifically boys & hockey sticks and balls and[...]

Ellie’s Light & Airy Bedroom Makeover

I'm so excited to be sharing Ellie's room with you guys today! It was a long labour of love due to my indecisiveness and the fact that I distract easily by other projects. So now that I have 371 projects on the go, I figured it's about time some of them get finished. I can now cross number 184 (Ellie's room) off the list. High fives all around!! Awhile ago I made a mood board to help give me some idea's on what I wanted to do with her room. Although I strayed a bit from my original idea, I managed to pull off the light and airy feel that I was ultimately aiming[...]

Light & Airy Mood Board Inspiration

Happy Friday friends! When you decide that you're going to give a space a do-over, do you sit and think through what the want the end result to be? Or do you just jump in head first and go where each day takes you? I'm a little bit of both, I have a vague idea of what I'm going for, then it turns into a trial and error adventure until I'm completed frustrated & super happy. I'll have to admit, this isn't exactly the best approach for me....or anyone! Oftentimes I find myself stuck with the way things are progressing. This is what actually happened with[...]

When teal goes bad – A Bathroom Makeover Story

Sometimes, good paint choices go bad. They really, really do. I've always loved the look of a deep teal color and knew that I would one day have a room in this color. Well, the first room I painted in our home was our main floor bathroom & it was painted deep teal. At first thought I KNEW this would be the perfect space for it. It wasn't a large room, you could easily close the door if it was too much and who didn't want to do their business in a dark brooding room? There were three HUGE problems with this choice. Number one was that the color did not in an[...]
